Video of the Moment #1194: Duologue

By on Sunday, 28th April 2013 at 6:00 pm

London’s Duologue have a great new video for their song ‘Cut & Run’, and I love it: it’s their tour diary of their time at SXSW 2013, and it brings back so many wonderful memories for me. (See that Blackheart emblem? I saw them there!) Watch it below.

The band will be performing at both Liverpool Sound City and the Great Escape next month.



Video of the Moment #1193: Young Fathers

By on Sunday, 28th April 2013 at 10:00 am

Edinburgh-based Young Fathers have a new video for ‘I Heard’, ahead of the band’s releasing of ‘Tape Two’ on the 11th of June. This follows ‘Tape One’ EP released last year; you can grab track ‘Deadline’ from the previous EP from this previous mp3 of the day post.

The band appears at this year’s Great Escape on the Saturday.



Video of the Moment #1191: Crystal Fighters

By on Saturday, 27th April 2013 at 10:00 am

Crystal Fighters will be appearing at the Great Escape next month, and here’s their latest video for song ‘You & I’. It’s happy and frenetic and the video is just perfect for what we hope will be summery weather for the start of the festival season next month.



Video of the Moment #1190: The 1975

By on Friday, 26th April 2013 at 6:00 pm

It’s been a stellar year so far for Manchester’s The 1975, and this re-released version of ‘The City’, is to appear on the ‘IV’ EP available on the 20th of May. So it makes sense that they would record a new video, one that looks miles different than the one we posted in my Bands to Watch feature on them in July 2012 but maintains the dramaticism that frontman Matthew Healy explained in my interview with him DC last month. Watch the video below.

The band will be appearing at both Liverpool Sound City and the Great Escape in May.



Update: The Great Escape 2013 reveals final band line-up

By on Friday, 19th April 2013 at 1:00 pm

It’s just under a month until Brighton’s bars, clubs and venues get invaded by a host of giddy A & R reps, jubilant journalists and the best new bands the scene can offer at the moment.

The Great Escape 2013 is promising to be the biggest event of its kind in the UK and is already known as the British version of SXSW. That’s an accolade that can’t be sniffed at in any way; they may not have Dave Grohl as a main speaker, but The Great Escape convention runs alongside the festival proper and will once again host a variety of insightful industry talks, panel debates, targeted networking sessions and keynote interviews for industry professionals and music business fans.

Two of the hottest acts pitching up on the South Coast are originally from the area and will definitely be putting on some of the best shows of the festival: Tall Ships‘ album ‘Everything Touching’ is one of my stand-outs of the last 6 months and after this 2013 BRIT Awards Critic’s Choice win, Tom Odell is tipped by everyone and their gran to be stratospheric.

New additions to the bill include one of my favourite interviewees in working at TGTF, the witty Hackney hailing wordsmith Mikill Pane, who will be playing Coalition on the Saturday. (Read the interview here.) You may have heard of his track ‘Little Lady’ with Ed Sheeran, which features on Ed’s No. 5 Collaborations Project. Nina Nesbitt will also be bringing some of her fanatic Nesbians to the Brighton shores.

Topping the bill though you’ve got Everything Everything, hot to trot boys Bastille, alongside the experience of Billy Bragg (pictured at top).

Tickets are still available for just £49.50. All those bands for less than £50? You’d be mad not to go. Get those wristbands now!
